CONWAY, S.C. (AP) - A Conway man charged with murder in the death of a Coastal Carolina University is staying behind bars after a bond hearing.
The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reported that Judge Aaron C. Butler denied bond Sunday for 20-year-old Marquis Spencer McDonald. McDonald's initial hearing is scheduled for April 26.
McDonald is charged with murder in the death of 19-year-old Anthony Liddell, a sophomore at Coastal from Bennettsville.
Liddell was shot in the chest Tuesday night in a parking lot.
McDonald appeared at the hearing without an attorney. He told the judge that Liddell was one of his best friends and that Liddell saved his life.
